Can you motivate me to clean?

House is a mess. Normally I'm self motivated after my online classes. Not today. Plus my daughter is keeping me occupied! But she is eating and should nap soon...perfect opportunity for me to get some stuff done around the house but I need some motivation.
How do you motivate yourself to clean??

  • I turn on the music if your daughters sleeping maybe you have a mp3 player, or ipod???
    Or just keep it low. Music motivates me to clean, the whole dancing with the broom and mop,......hahahahahhhaha! Seriously i do it,,,shhhhh don't tell no one...lmfao. It helps me clean. I can't clean without it.

  • the thought of germs and bacteria usually motivate me. Im a big watcher of how clean is your house on BBCA. lol. U can watch it on utube. after I watch that, I usually start scrubbing something even if everythings already clean. lol here hun, after this you might get motivated (im sooo not saying your house is probally like this, its just what works for me) watch this

  • Actually I do alot of it in the evening hrs. The days are so beautiful that I love just sitting outside.
    Laundry gets done during the day, but the rest of the house will get done in the evening so there isn't much to do during the day.

  • The thought of someone walking into a messy house. That and the thought of all those germs on my floor, tub, sink, counters, light switches, toilet, etc. Yeah that motivates my butt!!
